Co-creation with Startups

Padang & Co’s co-creation activities are Open Innovation. Through our involvement in corporate Innovation platforms, such as The Unilever Foundry, we scout for startups and dynamic SMEs to address specific business challenges and opportunities. The search is, more often than not, a global or regional one.

From the curation of the list of suitable startups to the preparation of the startups to pitch, and to pilot, the business users and startups / SMEs are taken through a well-defined process to deliver the win-win outcomes.

We’re a startup ourselves. We understand the challenges faced by startups and what they need – access to the right partner to scale. If you’re a startup doing something interesting – anywhere in the world – we’d love to get to know you. Drop us an email: startups@padang.co.
